the federal government and fema and the bureaucracy i think it's daunting. people are worried it's going to be red tape and programs that are not going to essentially solve their needs in the short term. you know, the short-term needs people have here is basically to get the debris away from their homes to secure structures to make it safer. there are still thousands of people in shelters who are going to be running out of food and supplies and those kinds of places up and down the coast and further inland. power, of course, is out to 60% of the entire state. so before -- once you get those things re-established, then you can begin to start rebuilding and really getting your foot -- your feet back on the ground here. it's going to take a while. i think people are encouraged that the president is coming. it certainly shows that he's concerned about what's happened here. but as always, i think there are going to be a lot of doubts and frustrations in terms of what exactly is going to happen here soon because it's going to take a while. obviously it's going to take a while. andrea? >> ron a

a great job. fema is bailing. fema wants to help out, should come in here with generators, plug them, in get gas stations up and running and people can live their lives again. get generators to get the power going. then you won't see the people dumpster diving or waiting for lines to get gas. >> andrea: i want to get bob in here. what about the politics of it? we're four days away from an election. should president obama be doing more than photo op in new jersey and one in the war room? >> bob: let me get the marathon out of the way. the fact it's in central park is more insidious. what you are doing is picking out isolated incidents here. there were 8.5 million people out of electricity when it was at its peak. 3.8 million without electricity. they cut in half number without electricity. fema is doing math job. fact of the matter is this has been, this is one of the most massive storms, storm surges we have seen. you can't say it would be nice if they can do more. they are doing evening they can. i don't understand why the national guard has not been called out. >> greg: who can for

around the country. i we have a discussion about fema and also one about u.s. foreign policy in asia. >> we don't have the highest mountains or a disney world. what we have is a great state. this is a sugar maple in for a hard rock maple. the average is 2%. what we do to start the season is drill hole to win the tree about an inch deep. this tree here in 2012, right here you see that you can't get the sprout. that means that that tree is healthy. the scar tissue below and there is scar tissue above -- so it won't run the sap at this point. semester we will go for the other side of the tree. we will do this in 2011 in 2010. you might think that we are hurting the truth, but we can assure that the trees have been tapped 100 years in a row and they are still producing. >> more from vermont tv this weekend. as booktv and c-span's local content vehicles look behind-the-scenes at the history and literary life of the vermont state capitol, montpelier, vermont, on booktv and c-span2. sunday at 5:00 p.m. on american history tv on c-span3. hurricane sandy is now believed to be one of the costl

things are stable and who is going to pay for the damage repairs. that is dealing with fema on a presidentially declared disaster like this. the insurance company is the first to pay but they can be reimbursed by the federal government depending on what kind of damage you have and what you are eligible for. >> how long does it take? >> often times it takes weeks or a month or so to work with fema to figure out what is covered and what is not. >> if your house is flooded you have to wait until the insurance conductor comes out to assess before you can start to rebuild? >> usually within 72-hours you will get the visit from the fema inspector and insurance adjust tore. you figure out who is paying for what to make sure you are covered to see who your contact will be. >> do you recommend that they rebuild their house get the water out? where do they do? what do they do? >> water is the biggest problem. the longer water stays in your house the most chance you have to have mold and those kind of problems. get any wet materials out of the house and make sure mold is not setting in
been all over. fema has been fantastic. and responsive and working these types of situations. i have total respect for the job that fema is doing. i want to thank them very much as well as the army corps of engineers. as you all know, one of the major problems still is the water in the tunnels, the water has receded, so when you drive around, it looks like most of the water is gone, but the water filled the subway tunnels in many places, fill the brooklyn battery tunnel, and when the water fills the tunnels, that means con-edison has issues. much of con-ed's equipment was in the tunnels, so getting the water out of the tunnels probably the main -- one of the main orders of business right now. first a transportation update. as you know, the new york city buses are at full service today. thank you, mr. joe and your extraordinary team. there will be limited commuter rail service on metro north and on the long island railroad which will begin 2:00 p.m. today. okay? limited commuter rail service on metro north and limited new york city subway service subpoena meanted by a business bridge

with fema, how much do you think that may have had an impact, because it stopped whatever momentum mitt romney may have been enjoying. >> i would say i think the race is kind of upset. mitt romney got a bump off the first debate. by october 15th, the race had settled to where it was up until hurricane sandy. i point to the "washington post"/abc news, doing tracking polls every day about a week and a half now, the last two rolling tracks we've asked about president obama's job performance on sandy, 78% two days ago said excellent or good, 79% said excellent or good. yesterday. when you're dealing with the margins here, it can't hurt. i think the fact that the president got to be the president, kind of be bipartisan, to go up, look at things, that role, remember the people haven't decided yet, aren't partisans on either side. they tend to be independent on affiliated -- unaffiliated voters. who don't like that partisanship. for him to be with chris christie looking like they were working together for the good of the people in new jersey and new york, that accrues to his broad benefit. do
are. you hear, don't pol itisize thi. i want to listen to candidate romney talking about fema during a presidential debate. this is the key moment we all want to here. new studio. we don't have it this morning. i will read a bit of it. when he was asked about fema, mr. romney said absolutely every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the state, that's the right direction. you can go further and send it back to the private sector. that's better. he talks about taking fema and divesting it into the states. yet, this week, i think that statement is many could go back to haunt him. is this more than anything a teachable moment for mitt romney? >> storms bring the best and the worst out in america. they both seem to show up during a natural disaster. a natural disaster is one that crosses a couple of states. i lived through hurricane hugo in 1989 and watched the politics of a hurricane. we were out of power. my business was down. for politicians, they have to be very careful. it can make or break a political career. this is where the
, the federal government through fema and the fema funds. third, state funds and state programs that are available. we had a conversation with the president last night. once again, he was asking how he could help, how the federal government could help and what came out of that conversation is we will be the blowing 30 joint teams in the region. between the state and the federal government through fema. these teams will have an expert in each area. an expert with private insurance, and expert with fema, and an expert with the state who knows the state housing programs these joint teams will be deployed in the 30 key areas in the region and fema will be providing the 30 personnel for those teams. we think the president for that. it is another step in a full agenda of federal assistance to our region. we thank them for that. those 30 teams will start to be assembled next week. they will be dispatched to the affected communities speaker governor andrew cuomo of new york. a couple things he pointed out. 90% of the island, which is really such a huge number when you think about it, th

"." we have finally bipartisanship. a full fema membership. >> if you call 1-800-621-fema. >> cenk: that's interesting. the federal government is going to rebuild that. how do the republicans feel about that? we'll show you in just a minute. >> you see the color that's fuel oil and transmission fuel. each one toxic and hazardous material. >> cenk: one of the top climatologists in the field with us today. do you know there was a warning that this would happen in new york exactly like this? we'll share that with you, as well. at the end of the show, are some halloween outfits out of bounds. >> as ill considered party costumes go, this one sets a new standard. prince harry showed up dressed as german's world war ii africa core complete with nazi armband. >> cenk: are some halloween costumes also racist. we have differing opinions on that. and then an interesting story about how a guy broke into high house by a crazy guy. did it change my mind on gun rights. interesting show. it's go time. >> the president now coming off of air force one. >> within a week you have the president of the united
to witness it personally. we are doing what we need to do coordinating with fema. i want to thank mr. fugate. we will move on from here. what i said yesterday i really mean. there is going to be soro, you -- sorrow, and you see that. the president has seen that today. that is appropriate. we have suffered from loss. we have not suffered that much a loss of life and we thank god for that. we have suffered losses. this is the worst storm i have seen in my lifetime in the state but we cannot permit that sorrow to replace the resilience we have. we will get up and we will get this thing rebuilt and we'll get things back together because that is what the state is all about. for all of you who are here, and i met a bunch of you today who disregarded my admonition, at to get the hell out of here, you are forgiven this time. but not for much longer. when all of you look around and you see the destruction, all that stuff can be replaced. you look to your right and left, to your husband, your wife, those are the things that cannot be replaced. i am glad we do not have that kind of loss of life. thank
by the red cross and fema and janet napolitano was on the ground. those are all important steps at the very least symbolically for the residents of this neighborhood who have felt cut off. they're still kind of angry that it took so long to get here, but fema and the red cross are on the ground right now, so that's a positive step. the thing to remember, the fema facility, red cross, they're about a mile away from here. a lot of the people in this neighborhood don't necessarily know they're there because they have no tv, no internet, no phone service. little cell service, so word of mouth isn't getting around to quite as many people as maybe as those who could use that facility over there. so that's still a challenge for the red cross and fema to serve people inside this neighborhood and get aid to them when people don't necessarily know they're only about a mile away. >> thank you very much. as we said, so many were frustrated, but they're there now trying to help. a lot of people there have trouble communicating. a these are areas where there's a lot of poverty and that's something that i
, and that fema thing i think is also going to hurt romney. >> when she was declared the victor, it was over. >> florida may be too far a bridge for barack obama, but by putting bill clinton and all the things you mentioned, it means the romney campaign has to pay attention to it. >> let's talk about "the washington post" editorial today because it gets to the question of fouling. of breaking the rules and going -- basically saying things that even the totally independent people say is dishonest. here it is, quote, "washington post," through all the flip-flops there's been one consistency in the campaign of republican presidential nominee mitt romney. a contempt for the electorate. how else to explain his refusal to disclose essential information, how other than an assumption that voters are too dim to remember what mr. romney has said across the years and months, to account for his breathtaking ideological shifts. within limits all candidates say and do what they have to say and do to win. mr. romney by contrast seems to be betting voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills, and a gene
relief. even get rid much fema, and based on a debate last year. and he said that the federal role should be limited and romney was asked multiple times today to clarify the position on fema he didn't answer. afterward, romney's campaign insists he would eliminate fema, that may be true, but the plan to reduce the deficit would include cutting spending, and that would likely include fema. and paul ryan released his budget last year, which caused for a 35% cut to fema. >> we'll see if he talks about that tomorrow on the campaign trail. dana bash, appreciate it. we'll be right back. now you don't have to go to a bank to get the things you want from a bank, like no-fee atms, all over the world. free checkwriting and mobile deposits. now depositing a check is as easy as taking a picture. free online bill payments. a highly acclaimed credit card with 2% cash back into your fidelity account. open a fidelity cash management account today and discover another reason serious investors are choosing fidelity.

, i quote, an absurd notion. they say because big government is better, whether it is fema or a new department of business that president obama wants too create about which we can talk more if you have time. but bottom line, fema has a terrible track record, most big federal bureaucracies do, they come up with their man made inside of the beltway, which does not necessarily fit when applied to a state or local community, any time there is a difference of opinion with between the local guys and federal government, the feds -- 92 bu92. neil: but they all welcome fema help. >> when it involves money. do you think that chris christie would have said that if it are not for the money. neil: that is his acknowledgment that government works ? >> no, that is his acknowledge am he could use all federal money he can get. this is a political statement, on part of chris christie, and everyone is trying to be as friendly as they can before the election. they don't want to be seen as using this for political purposes. neil: you say, the times leaves you wondering whether private enterprise can wor
